Holidays — watching vampire movies

Queen of the Damned poster What have I done after my last exam? Nothing much! :-)

So, for example, yesterday Stéphanie and I watched the last hour or so of Queen of the Damned together… on a French channel! Vampire movies can be a bit of fun, and I’ve seen a fair number of episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I’ve never before seen vampires speak French.

The problem is that I’ve never had any French lessons in school, so the language is utterly and completely nonsense to me. I understand when they say “Oui” or “No”, but that’s about it.

So Stéphanie translated for me, but of course that doesn’t really give the same scary feeling like the original :-) And it didn’t help either that neither of us had seen the first hour of the movie, so we probably missed the finer details in the plot. Not that I think the movie had a huge plot, but anyway… :-)
